There's always lots of crowd chatter in Cervantes' and this night was no exception. The noise seems to have gotten on Steve's nerves just a bit.
Lineup: Steve Kimock, Rodney Holmes, Mitch Stein, Leo Traversa, Jim Kost
Subject: Worth a (re)visit
General crowd noise is quite loud in this recording but it's still worth a listen.
Subject: good for kimock!
good show btw
Subject: What? Kimock?
Anyways, just seems a little ridiculous to me. Sad to hear this, i was really looking forward to seeing him at haymaker, but he seems to be very arrogant. Yeah the first time he says stfu is one thing, but then he comes back and does it again. Just ridiculous, arrogance. God damnit.
Subject: Hell Yeah Steve!
Subject: never heard of
Subject: Let's not be too harsh....
Subject: I never thought I would see the day!
Subject: Do you know where the mikes were placed for the VBR MP3 recording of the show?
Subject: The possibility of bliss
Get some food. I think your blood-sugar is low.
Subject: Kimock Outburst stupid
I even think that western art music, including opera is too uptight anyway. I have been to performances where they won't even let you in the door while the people are performing. Give me a break.
Steve Kimock makes a living off of this scene, and he knows exactly what he is getting into when he plays a ballroom, and not small laid back jazz place, or a theater. His music is geared towards the jamband scene, and to a certain extent, people can pick up on how serious, or deep, or spritual or whatever you want to call it, the music is. To me, it says something about his music that people aren't listening.
Subject: Did we forget what music is?
Subject: In Steve's Defense
Subject: Kimock < Mitch
Revision: If you think there were only 400 people there this time, there's going to be a whole lot less chatter when only 100 show up for the next one after this episode. There may be a few 'flok' that will always be on their knees in front of kimock, but for the most part, he pissed off a large portion of the local colorado jam scene. I can say that I was getting tired of watching a 5 star band perform with a guitar noodler before this show, and now that the noodler is behaving like a 5 year old prima donna, I'm not going to give him any more of my money. Bring back the Herminators! I'll pay to see them anyday! I agree with the other poster, that we are his employers. Nobody at that show was out of line. Everyone was just having a good time and it is the nature of the room that made it loud (and it wasn't even that loud). This is a well known fact about this room. If I behaved that way at work to my clients, I would be fired in a second. If he doesn't like chatter and bars, book him in a symphony hall and charge 75 dollars. I know I won't be there.
Subject: Good for Steve!!
Subject: I WANT TO PUKE
Subject: Crowd Noise
Crowd noise detracts from the music.
